Lesotho: 360-View of the 'Kingdom of the Sky'
Nestled within South Africa is the Royal Kingdom of Lesotho. The nation known as the "Kingdom of the Sky" for its gorgeous mountains also has one of the highest rates of HIV in the world. To maneuver over often-impassable mountain roads, Lesotho uses a pony program to deliver HIV/AIDS services to thousands of villagers suffering with the virus. Local horse owners use a special breed of Basotho pony to deliver drugs, pick up blood samples and return HIV test results to isolated health centers deep in the mountains.
